Here is just one of the many examples things we can create with spheres (and gradients!).

|What kind of emotion is expressed through the color scheme?|
|Doesn't the stark contrast between the black and salmon|
give a strong impression and feeling?
Colors can be used to represent so many things!
|This picture was taken at sunset during fall, one of the best|
times of the year for vivid colors.
Some people prefer painting or taking pictures during a sunset or sunrise because of the beautiful colors. A good majority of pictures of the Grand Canyon were taken during sunrise or sunset, when colors were the most vivid.
|Only having the green colored gives a new|
meaning to this image.
Color can completely alter the message in a picture or support it, and it is important to learn to use this tool well to give interesting images.
|How does the bright and perky pink flower make you feel?|
They can add mood to a picture or pull your attention to a certain place on a picture and not another.

Something I particularly like to try is drawing hands in all sorts of positions, even if most of the time, they end up as a complete failure! : ) However, I keep trying and sometimes, it really is worth it, since sometimes, my own hand surprises me with its capabilities.
When I originally started drawing this picture, I had no intent of placing a rock there. Yet, as it progressed, the need for a very conveniently placed rock arose. So I ended up drawing it. : )

Light can completely change the look of your pictures. Learning to use it to your advantage is a valuable and powerfultool. Light can be used for many different effects, such as silhouettes, high contrast, to tell the eye where to look, or even to show symbolism.
The picture on the right shows the silhouette of a dog. This picture uses high contrast with the reflection of light on the floor and the darkness of the dog. The long shadow also makes the picture more interesting.
Symbolically speaking light can represent many things. The most common is hope. Therefore, by using high contrast and light, you can add an abstract thought into your pictures, making them even more meaningful.
Light can also represent the magic of life. Without life, nothing would be able to thrive and live. Light has shone down upon us since the beginning, and I mean the beginning. So in a way, a place without light is a place without life.
The picture on the left could either be a sunrise, or a sunset, and symbolically speaking, they both mean completely different things. Can you tell whether this is a sunrise or a sunset???
The two following pictures were taken at slightly different angles, creating a completely different effect. The top one shows the power of the sun in its full grandeur. The rays of light reach far and wide with a mix of magenta and white/yellow streams of light. Being in the center and top of the picture, the effect of power is portrayed in this photo. I put this picture as my desktop background and for the first few days, simply looking at the picture was blinding!
The second photo, taken at a slightly lower angle, depicts a very different effect. This time, the light goes more to show the magic of life in a plant. It seems like light has managed to escape the bulb and is bringing life to all of the plants around. What also is interesting is that the "container" of the light is really dark, in contrast to the inside, which is full of bright light. This effect could mirror humans in a way. On the outside, they look dull, but each person has their very own light inside of them.
